For months, the worst kept secret about Iron Man has been Samuel L. Jackson’s cameo as Nick Fury, Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. Marvel and director Jon Favreau tried to play coy for a while, but they finally gave up and admitted that, yes, Sam Jackson dropped by for a one-day shoot as the eye-patched superspy.

The panel – which was comprised of Wizard Entertainment’s Rickey Purdin and Toyfare Magazine’s Adam Tracy – did confirm that there will be some kind of a crossover between Iron Man and The Incredible Hulk, but I seriously doubt they’re going to wedge a Tony Stark/Nick Fury scene into Edward Norton’s tour de force. As far as I can tell, the only plausible option is holding it back for the DVD, which would be a weak launch for a character unknown to most non-geeks.
It’ll be interesting to see how this plays out. I know that Marvel is dead set on Jackson as Fury, and I’ve heard that his scene with Robert Downey Jr. is terrific; it certainly doesn’t sound like the kind of thing that gets shot for an Extended Edition DVD. Let’s see if we can’t get something a tad more solid on this…
